Odd multi-national budget label with signifciant output in the USA and Holland.
I'm not sure how interlinked the different international branches were.
Many releases seem to be exclusive to each country, focussing on local artists without international profile.
The 6100 Atlas series was American in origin and covered the world.

Olympic Records Ireland Ltd was founded by Sean Clancy and George O'Reilly circa 1974.
The Irish branch was located at 28 Gardiner Place, Dublin 1, Ireland.
